Praise for WINK MURDER
Jo Nesbo, Stephen King, Patricia Cornwell and Ali Knight
<i>Independent</i> Books of the Year 2011
A tight-plotted, too-close-for-comfort thriller that races to the finish. Pacey and disquieting, Knight's debut hints she might be a successor to Sophie Hannah's queen of suspense crown.
<i>Stylist</i> Book of the Week
'A really enjoyable read.'
Martina Cole
'Knight's promising debut . . . crackles from first page to last . . . She could be very good indeed.'
<i>Daily Mail</i>
'Tightly-plotted, high-pitched psychological thriller . . . what bright new talent Ali Knight does so successfully, and with a welcome fresh eye, is broach the great divide between public and private space.' ****
<i>Daily Mirror</i>
'A fast-paced whodunit.'
<i>Woman and Home</i>
'A psychological drama that grips from first to last'
A tightly constructed, suspenseful thriller that will have you turning pages and keep you guessing all the way to the dramatic conclusion.
The large cast and complicated happenings make an intriguing - if quite muddling - read, and Ali Knight writes well.
<i>Literary Review</i>
[A] suspenseful Hitchcockian tale . . . [one of the] top ten crime books to take on holiday
